The Society invites applications for grants from its Research Fund. Awards are open to both members and non-members of BENHS and will be made to support research on insects and other invertebrates with reference to the British Fauna, and with an emphasis on:
- field work on insects or other invertebrates with relevance to their conservation
- work leading to the production of identification guides and distribution lists.
The work and travel is not limited to the British Isles but must have a demonstrable relevance to the British fauna. Travel to examine museum collections and to consult taxonomic specialists would be included.
Successful applicants are required to provide a report to the BENHS within 6 months of the project’s completion, including high resolution JPEG images for use on the Society’s website. Publication of an article in the Society’s Journal or a poster presentation at the AGM or Annual Exhibition would be welcomed.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
